Never unhappy." That's how neighbors describe the little girl stabbed Saturday.
Police say her father's girlfriend is responsible
We spoke briefly with the father, who was obviously upset. He didn't want to talk to us on-camera, just saying he was just too upset to talk about what happened. Neighbors say his name is Dave.
Police arrested 22-year-old Serenity Sanchez
Saturday night, saying she stabbed her boyfriend's 3-year-old girl in the stomach
. They say it happened inside a Southeast Portland apartment after the couple got into a domestic dispute
Neighbors tell us they have never heard the couple fight, which is why the toddler getting stabbed comes as such a shock.
"Did she purposefully try to stab the baby," said neighbor Renee Gordon, "or was she just having a fight with Dave and the baby was physically in the middle of it and got stabbed?"
There are obviously quite a few questions still on how this happened. Police won't say what the weapon was, just calling it a "sharp object."
